Multiple object class support for IdB5

Bob Bradley 3 years ago • updated by anonymous 3 years ago 3

I am looking at https://unifysolutions.jira.com/wiki/display/IDB50/Adapter+Overview but I can't find any documentation on how to combine objects from different connectors into the same adapter as I was able to do in IdB4 using a composite adapter. I was always under the impression that the composite adapter idea was being obsoleted but that it was being replaced with another approach which would accommodate this requirement. I now wish to add a "state" object class in my existing "HR Person" adapter. Can I please have a pointer as to how to do this in IdB5?

As Identity Broker is now essentially an LDAP server, it's up to you to decide what objects you want to bring into the IdM platform. For FIM/MIM, have a look at partitions/heirarchies and objects classes here.

I'm kind of discovering this by trial-and-error in MIM right now ... seeing multiple partitions of data. Figure I just need to find the doco on the change in approach here now.

Thanks Adam but I am trying to use Microsoft's generic LDAP MA and I can't find any info on that yet :)
